quality of life
I want all Van Horn residents to breathe a breath of fresh air and be satisfied with their quality of life including:
- Accessible Healthcare
- Family oriented community with outdoor recreational space for both adults and children to enjoy our beautiful desert views
- Educational opportunities
- Employment opportunities
When elected Mayor of Van Horn, I won't pass by any opportunities to improve our peaceful neighborhoods. I will welcome and encourage all people to bring their voice and ideas to our town. My open mind, combined with my broad government knowledge will facilitate making the peoples goals for Van Horn, a reality.
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT & INFRASTRUCTURE
Let's create a climate where local businesses can thrive! As Mayor, I intend to work hand-in-hand with the Van Horn Economic Development Corporation which has been stagnant for almost two years to strengthen our town’s economy. I will do this by making sure local businesses have the tools necessary to open up shop and stay competitive. One of the most critical needs for economic development to succeed is maintaining our infrastructure. When I am elected Mayor of Van Horn, I will work on the following:
- Maintaining paved streets on time
- Maintaining and upgrading the water system before a critical need arises
- Facilitate solutions for sewage and garbage needs
- Work with interested business to set up shop in our town
- Finds ways to pay for beautifying our main street in order to create a welcome atmosphere and increase tourist traffic
- Work to develop a much needed housing market for our area so Van Horn can accommodate new growth from businesses and welcome families to move here at the same time!
As your Mayor, I pledge to help local leaders cooperate with each other and stretch our tax dollars for the betterment of our community. To spend money efficiently, it's imperative we improve working relationships among all local taxing entities and facilitate cooperation with our non-profit service groups in order to put the needs of the community first. I will make sure our local tax dollars are used to leverage grant assistance and promise full transparency in local government so that all citizens can see what the elected officials are doing and how our tax dollars are being spent.
